How many truly amazing family portraits do you have? How many of them are locked away in an e-mail or social media account that you can't remember the password to? How many of them were lost in a hard drive crash? How many were lost when you lost your phone? How many of them have you printed out and displayed in your home on a wall or in a photo album? And with you being a busy mom or dad, likely behind the camera most of the time, how many of these family portraits actually include YOU?
In her article, "Are We Breeding a 'Lost Generation' Who Won't Have Photo Albums to Capture Their Lives?" Julia Llewellyn Smith mulls over the fact that while her 10-year old daughter delights in looking at family portraits of her mom as a child, when her daughter asks, "Where are the pictures of my Christmases?" Julia shamefully answers that she's unsure.
So don't let your children become part of the "lost generation." Instead, give your children a solid sense of their past with professional family photography in conjunction with heirloom wall art and custom, heirloom-quality photography albums.
